You take pride in your work and know what it means to deliver high-quality products. This position will report to our Technical Director and oversee both internal and external smart contract developers.

- Be a self-motivated team player with a positive attitude and strong work ethic.
- Ability to self-manage when given prioritized goals and objectives.

Note: This is a leadership position for blockchain and smart contract technology development but requires only an interest in blockchain, smart contracts, and solidity development. We are looking for a technology leader who has brought technology to market and wants to broaden their knowledge base to include the exciting world of blockchain and smart contract development.
Laguna Games is the developer of Crypto Unicorns, a new blockchain-based game centered around awesomely unique Unicorn NFTs that players use in a fun farming simulation and in a variety of exciting battle loops.

Crypto Unicorns is our first digital nation and we are extremely excited to build it in tandem with our player community!
